Redhook is filing this one under “best holiday ideas, ever.”
Created using 1,050 empty bottles and standing over six feet tall, the “beer tree” doesn’t need any water. All it requires is a few dedicated drinkers and the willpower to finish around 44 cases of beer. (Redhook suggests asking friends or family for help before trying to finish this much beer solo).
If you don’t yet have your tree this year, or you’re living in a part of the world where fresh-cut douglas fir isn’t available, a beer tree can be a nice alternative. Yours doesn’t have to be six feet tall. It’s easy to make a smaller one if you like.
And just like a real tree, a beer tree is 100% recyclable.
